2.4 billion for two new southern hospitals announced for Quintana Roo

Costa Maya, Q.R. — The towns of Felipe Carrillo Puerto and Chetumal in the state’s south are set for new hospitals, while a facility in Nicolás Bravo is nearing completion.

With an investment of more than 2.4 billion pesos from the Government of Mexico, Quintana Roo will have new hospitals in Chetumal and Felipe Carrillo Puerto to increase and improve medical services.

As a result of the efforts of the Governor of Quintana Roo before the federation, the construction and equipment of two new general hospitals will begin in 2024, one for Chetumal and the other for Felipe Carrillo Puerto.

For the new General Hospital of Felipe Carrillo Puerto, an investment of more than 854 million pesos has been set aside which, once built, will benefit more than 101,000 people.

“This project contemplates an increase from 30 to 60 hospital beds and will have offices, a toco-surgery area (labor rooms), emergencies, diagnostic assistants, among other areas that a hospital of its type must contemplate,” reported Flavio Carlos Rosado, the State Secretary of Health.

An investment of approximately 1.4 billion pesos is contemplated for the Chetumal General Hospital which will benefit a population of almost 300,000 area residents.

“This hospital will increase from 90 to 120 beds and have operating rooms, a toco-surgery area, outpatient consultation, dialysis, hemodialysis, intensive care unit in addition to the areas and services to care for users,” explained Carlos Rosado.

Likewise, work is being completed at the Nicolás Bravo hospital where 40.3 million pesos is being invested.
